Less than a hundred pages to go, I'm so happy. This is definitely ending up on my offload pile.
Lizzie only started getting more info and knowing what to do with her demon slaying powers in the the past 20 or so pages. Way too much of this book has been spent with her not knowing what's going on, surrounded by people who could tell her but won't.
"'The point is we're closing in on a demon infestation and you don't have the proper knowledge, training or security.' He loomed over me until I had to crane my neck to see his stormy expression. 'You refused you own grandmother's protection. And now you've shunned my efforts to spirit you away from this hellhole until we pursue a dog that may or may not even be inside.'"
Okay, this supernatural hottie that Lizzie is supposed to end up with at some point is pissing me off.
1. She did not know it was a protection potion.
2. No one in this situation has given Lizzie much reason to trust them because they never tell her anything. You can't keep yanking a stranger around and expect blind obedience. And because Lizzie has only just met her grandmother, that's what they are, strangers.
3. The lack of training and knowledge is not Lizzie's fault. Again, no one will tell her anything. Also, maybe the coven should have tried a little harder to find her over the years.
4. Lizzie is worried about the dog, who she has known a lot longer than anyone else in this story. It is perfectly valid for her to want to find him and make sure he's safe. Shut up and help her find the dog.
So far, I wouldn't call this a paranormal romance. It's more fluffy urban fantasy.
I'm guessing I'm supposed to think the coven is fun and amusing, but instead they're annoying me. Would it kill them to give Lizzie a little info here and there? I don't blame her for not drinking the protection potion, since 1) her assumption that it contained roadkill didn't seem too off-base considering their usual spell components and 2) they didn't tell her that it was a protection potion.
